    06 prerunner. Non Trd. 50k miles. Been offroad twice.

    Now. When traveling on dirt roads or chewed up pavement. I'm getting s steering shimmy. Speed bumps are fine. But rough pavement makes for one hell of a ride. This is indicative of bad shocks right? I just had alignment done.

    Dose the truck ride bad or something? I have 53k on my 08 and the stock shocks are good. I dropped the two rear ones about 3K ago and tested them no dead spots and good rebound.

    Do you have gas or oil shocks?
